Ever since Reese Witherspoon was arrested a little over a week ago, the world has been shaking its head saying, Reese? Really? The reports of her belligerent behavior that night were so unlike the American sweetheart we've all grown to love over the years. We started to question if she's turned into a big diva or maybe she's just a really good actress and has been one all along.
But tonight, some videos of the actual incident from the police dashboard camera were released, and while she was certainly sassy, it all sounds so much better when you see and hear the whole thing coming out of her mouth rather than reading excerpts from the police report. In fact, the tapes are almost funny.
In the first from TMZ, you her saying all sorts of crazy things like, "I'm a U.S. citizen, I'm allowed to stand on American ground" and "I'm obstructing your justice?" They just don't sound that bad in her sweet Southern voice.
And did you hear her husband at the end say, "I'm sorry I had nothing to do with that"?! Way to defend her there, Jim.
In the second video, you can hear her claiming to be pregnant. She's since apologized and said she is definitely not pregnant.
What JIm did was wrong, plain and simple; drunk driving is inexcusable. But actually seeing what Reese did makes me wonder if she really even should have been arrested. She wasn't really that bad. Sure she was a little ornery, but she wasn't the big belligerent diva they made her out to be. She just seemed like a really drunk version of the Reese we know and love.
What do you think of these videos? Do you think she should have been arrested for this?
